Absolutely! If you have a unique location that’s special to you, from your family farm or pond to a property or location you love, let’s use it. Please bring this up during our session planning conversations!

IS IT POSSIBLE TO HAVE MY SENIOR PORTRAITS TAKEN ON MY PROPERTY? 

No need to worry! Weather is one thing we can not control, so I have built flex days into my schedule that are reserved for rescheduled clients. Typically, I’m able to accommodate reschedules within 1-2 weeks, depending on how our schedules coordinate.

WHAT HAPPENS IF WEATHER BECOMES AN ISSUE? 

I recommend bringing along 4-5 outfits. We will capture at least three outfits, and before your session, we’ll discuss which outfits coordinate best with each location. In addition, if you have sports or band uniforms, bring those along to capture as well!

HOW MANY OUTFITS DO WE BRING? 

Approximately 24 hours after your session, you will see a sneak peek on social media. Then, four weeks later – get excited! – you’ll receive a link to view your fully edited, high-quality images in an online gallery.

WHEN WILL I RECEIVE MY IMAGES? 

 Let Me Answer Your Questions!

FAQS:

Your online gallery has a professional print shop within it, so purchasing products is a breeze. It’s user-friendly, and everything is shipped directly to your doorstep! If you’d like support in designing custom imagery, I’m happy to help.

HOW DO WE PURCHASE PRINTS? 

Yes! You will pay $300 at time of signing the contract, and the remainder will be split up into 2 equal payments, with the first payment due two months prior to your session date and the final payment due one week prior to your session. 

DO YOU OFFER PAYMENT PLANS?  

We have access to a couple of flower fields in the area. The Benton High School has a prairie field with beautiful poppy, which typically blooms in late June to early July. If you’d rather opt for cone flowers and sunflowers, let’s plan your session for August.

I WANT PHOTOS WITH A WILDFLOWER FIELD. WHAT MONTH IS BEST? 

Consider what type of outfits you want to wear. If you’re most comfortable in tank tops and shorts, a summer session is ideal for you, whereas if you envision cuddly warm sweaters and jeans, a fall session is more your style. Think about the landscape that surrounds you as well. If green grasses or fall leaves are important to you, I suggest choosing accordingly. I’m happy to offer advice!

WHAT TIME OF THE YEAR SHOULD I BOOK MY SESSION?

I have a pop-up changing tent that goes everywhere with us. Don’t worry: I have you covered!

HOW DO YOU CHANGE OUTFITS ONSITE?

YES! You’re more than welcome to include your fur babies. The only thing I ask is that the animal be on a leash and or halter of some sort. Again, preparation is key here, so let’s start the conversation early to ensure we have a location that will accommodate. 

CAN I INCLUDE MY FUR BABY, DOG, CAT, HORSE, ETC.?
